Kurashiki

3.3
A town once known for its industriousness, today Kurashiki enjoys a reputation for its architecture and art. Most tours of Kurashiki start in its centerpiece historic quarter, exploring warehouses used during the Edo period to store rice and sugar, and used in the textiles industry during the Meiji Restoration. The wealth accumulated during Kurashiki's productive past has left the old town dotted with architectural highlights, including warehouses now converted into museums, galleries, and restaurants. A gentle stroll under the weeping willows of the old canal district is a distinct pleasure in this stylish and historic town. Kurashiki is in Okayama Prefecture.

Where to stay in Kurashiki

Look to the canal district of Kurashiki for the most characterful accommodations in the old merchant town. Along the willow-lined banks of the main canal, you'll find a selection of hotels and traditional-style guesthouses known as ryokan, some converted from old warehouse buildings. Newly built establishments try their best to get close to the action of this scenic and historic district, so take a look on either side of the canal for a collection of fairly standard hotels and a few hostels.
